Letter to the editor: We need to fight injustice


    Dear Editor:

    I would like to thank the writer of the Sept. 2 Readers’ Forum letter for pointing out most basic and inexcusable historical errors in the Daily Universe article “Y Students in Jerusalem deal with foreign political unrest.” However, I am concerned by the letter’s tone equating critiques of Israeli imperialist policies with antisemitism. Not only has Israel extended beyond its “internationally declared borders,” it has also set up a clever and oppressive system of apartheid against its Palestinian “residents” in the “Occupied Territories.” As Mormons, we should fight against injustice, whether it be directed towards Jews or Palestinians, both of whom are Semitic peoples.
